Ithaca Police asking for help after six men randomly assault two others


ITHACA, N.Y. (WETM) – Ithaca Police are investigating a weekend assault they’re saying is a random act.

On November 14 around 1:30 a.m., two men were walking on the Ithaca Commons when a separate group of about six men engaged them. Then, without provocation, the six men reportedly punched and kicked the two men before fleeing on foot. Various surveillance cameras captured the assault.

The victims had various levels of injuries—none of them life-threatening—and were treated at a local hospital.

Police said the victims and suspects don’t know each other, and this seems to be a random act. The investigation is ongoing.
